Oyster Loft boasts a menu rich with fresh fish and thoughtfully executed dishes. Our raw bar features a variety of oysters shucked on the half shell from both the east coast and the west. The menu also includes seafood dishes, shellfish preparations and a selection of meat to round out the offerings. The range of the menu offers you the opportunity to choose your dining experience.
Great as usual. Have been thee many of times. Will be coming back soon.
OMG, since moving to SF from NYC two years this is one of the best food experiences we’ve had. We came here mainly because of hotel concierge tip that sunset is great and food is good. Oyster loft knocked it out of the ballpark on both counts. If you like Brussels sprouts like me you’re in luck, these are some of the best ever, foodgasmic. The Crudo plate sashimi style fish was exquisite..amazing hamachi with equally amazing ships leaves... leave room for perfection of Creme brûlée!!
We had the same waiter as we had about a month ago. He is great. The Halibut is fantastic. Our new go to place
We've been wanted to try this place for quite awhile as we live in the area and we are glad we finally did. Food is very good, really enjoyed the Hokkaido Scallops and my wife enjoyed the charbroiled oysters. Creme brulee dessert was also very good. Service was well done and Jeff was a very professional server.
There were only a couple of issues that kept it from getting 5 stars overall. First, my reservation was through OpenTable where I'd indicated a special occasion, but they didn't acknowledge it in any way. In fact, the first table they sat us at was very undesirable and the restaurant was mostly empty (something to do with the number of servers they said). Second, the patio is nice and we enjoyed it, however, I still like the setting of Ventana Grill, just up the road, much better.
It’s so yummy but a bit on the pricy side but my whole family of 6 loved it ! We ate a total of 235 dollars of seafood and it was so good ! Must try
Our waiter Paco was amazing and so helpful. Classy place would recommend to all! Definitely worth the cost...the food was delicious.
Truly one of the best on the central coast, or anywhere for that matter.
Amazing view, food presentation, service!
Best restaurant in Pismo Beach. Oysters appetizer was a very high quality.. Menu not large but good variety.
The evening started off really good, but it was clear when we sat down that our server, Courtney, was close friends with the table she was serving next to us. Initially, things went well, but the wait between our last appetizer and our entree was about 30min. It was a bit frustrating seeing our server distracted and talking to her friends for 15+ min while there was a clear delay. When the plates finally arrived, too hot to hold without a napkin, it felt obvious they had been sitting under a heat lamp and were forgotten. Courtney insisted she watched them plate it (despite the micro greens on top being wilted). We had lost our appetite by that point. She was very nice about our no longer wanting the entrees and promptly removed it from the receipt. While the fix was appreciated, the whole ordeal ruined a nice evening. Not sure if we’ll be back.
Don’t look for any other place to eat because this is it. Best food ever!!!! I wish I lived in area so i could eat here more often.
I am never disappointed at this restaurant is always on point!
My husband and I celebrated our anniversary at The Oyster Loft. We were very happy to have enjoyed a delicious meal. The service was great, and the restaurant has a beautiful view of the pier and beach. We highly recommend this restaurant.
We had the pleasure of having dinner at the Oyster Loft two or three months ago and we were determined to bring some friends back as it was so good. Timothy was our waiter this time and I honestly have to say he's one of the best servers we have ever had the pleasure of dining with. He has so much passion and love for his work, he made our experience very special! We followed his suggestions....the Beet salad was amazing, the scallops were so tender and flavorful and the Hanger Steak Au Poivre was the very best that I have ever had! Cannot wait to return!
Delish!!!!!! Great food and service!
Incredible food and wine experience. Save room for dessert, the chocolate peanut butter tower or anything that strikes your desire.
It was a perfect last dinner for our girls trip! The atmosphere, the food and especially our server Phillip made it a memorable and enjoyable evening!
I had the beet salad. The explanation showed micro-greens as part of the salad. There were 4 little leaves. I think they could have added a few more. The crab cakes were very good. Lived up to explanation. My husband enjoyed his char broiled oysters and Ceasar Salad. The service was excellent. The view spectacular and people watching on the boardwalk great fun.
We made reservations, wanted to make sure we could get in, didn’t know how busy it would be on a Wednesday. Our waiter was awesome, super personable and made sure we had everything and was persistent on making sure we were enjoying ourselves. Food was so good! Definitely recommend the orange glazed octopus and the tuna tataki. We also had the spicy tuna poppers, oysters and the crudo sampler. For sure going back as soon as possible.
If you want a great date night or just a place to enjoy Oysters, then the Oyster Loft is for you. Great food and fantastic presentation. You can casually spend 2 hours enjoying great food and a course a great view!
From the greeter, bus boys, our server, Victor and the manager, everyone went out of their way to give us outstanding customer service!
We loved the broiled oysters, the beef and polenta appetizer and the cioppino were all excellent.
We have dined there several times now and we haven’t had a bad dish!
we went for oysters and were not disappointed. Very fresh and delicious. All other food great also
We liked it so much we went back the following night. Highly recommend the oyster loft.
Great food and cocktails. Celebrating a birthday, our waiter was excellent.
Food was out a little slow (understood they were busy) but other than that it was good
We may have chosen the wrong weekend to go to Oyster Loft. We were celebrating a special occasion and it was a holiday weekend. The ambiance did not make the night out seem as special as it should have given the quality of food and high prices. Most other diners were straight off the beach (very casually dressed) and the setting felt loud and bright. The food was also not as good as I remember from a prior visit. I think we'll go back for casual drink at the bar and some oysters, but not for a special night out.
Exceptional food. All tasty dishes no matter what part of menu
You care to choose. Impressive tastes. Oysters so fresh. So one there knows how to cook!
Went here for my one year wedding anniversary with my husband and was not disappointed! I had the scallops and they were perfectly cooked. Definitely recommend!
Phillip was great! Great meal!!
Excellent food. Inspired!!! Delicious. As good as it gets.
They changed the Caesar salad and now it is just average. It used to be really good. Scallops were a little overcooked but the corn condiment that is served with them was very good. Still would recommend this place, but I think they are slipping a little from previous visits.
Best. Food. Ever. I want to go back to the coast just to eat here again!
Wonderful dinner as it always is when we visit.
We have been coming when we visit town since it opened and many of the servers have been there a ver long time. The service is always excellent. We were actually surprised how quiet it was this visit. All dishes were amazing, the stand outs being the scallops, and the tiramisu cake. Possibly the best desert we have ever shared.
Everyone was very helpful. Delicious hand crafted cocktails!! Oyster selection is divine.
We came here for out 5 year anniversary. Upon arrival the atmosphere was sophisticated yet welcoming and the space was beautifully curated to evoke an under water feel. The hostesses were friendly and seated us for our reservation right away. Our waitress Bri came over almost as soon ad we sat down and got our water preferences while we looked over the menu. While we were looking at the menu another server checked in to make sure we had gotten our drink order in. Bri came back with waters and offered some advice on oysters for my husband who had only had them once before. She also suggested a beer that would go well with our meal. After we ordered, we got a lovely basket of bread to munch on while we waited. The raw oysters straight from Morro Bay were a big hit with my husband as was the suggestion of how to pair the sauces. The warmed Brussels sprout salad was so phenomenal I considered cancelling my entree and getting a second serving. Everything was paired to perfection and delicious. We split the citrus salmon and the halibut, both of which we throughly enjoyed. We finished off the night with an incredible Madagascar vanilla bean creme brulee. It was the perfect end to a perfect meal. I highly recommend everyone experience the Oyster Loft and hope you are lucky enough to get Bri as a server.
Love love love! Spicy tuna poppers, warm Brussel Sprout salad, spicy margarita ... you can’t miss at this Pismo favorite!
All good except the oysters were tiny and only 3 scallop on the entree that were just medium sized. For the price you should have at least jumbo and like 6 of them. Heck Taco temple for half the price has twice the size and numbers on their taco! And delicious too! Expect a bit more from you !! The sauces were great though and the ceviche was outstanding!
The views are terrific, and the quality of the food (and the number of selections) is excellent! Loved the oysters, the octopus, and the black cod. We would definitely go back, and would recommend it. (The only downside is the neighborhood, which is a bit grungy -- but once inside, it's not an issue.)
We come to Oyster Loft about 3 times a year... It is simply the Best restaurant in Pismo Beach.
The Filet Mignon and the Scallops are exquisite, not to mention the most breathtaking Ocean Views
from the Patio Seating... We like to come on our Anniversary..
We love it there! We go there whenever we visit our family. The waiters are great and they go out of the way to accommodate us. We are always a large party and make a reservation in advance. Great views and fantastic and unusual food. Go there!
